Overview Tardive dyskinesia (TD) is a serious side effect that may occur with some medications used to treat mental illness. It is characterized as involuntary movements of the tongue, lips, face, trunk or extremities. Because TD may become a permanent condition if not detected early, a thorough understanding of TD pathophysiology and risk and recognition of the comprehensive array of signs and symptoms manifested in TD is critical for supporting patients with TD. Nurse practitioners in primary care and psychiatry who care for patients treated with antipsychotic drugs need to be aware of the potentiality of TD developing and stay vigilant in monitoring patients in their care.
Recognize the symptoms and impact of tardive dyskinesia (TD).
Describe hyperkinetic movement disorders.
Identify TD based on appropriate examinations and assessments.
Develop management strategies to improve outcomes for patients with TD.
